A little word about this: I knew from the moment I asked for the "Murder Mystery" card that I would edit a fake trailer for Melody Malone. My problems were mostly technical afterwards -they always are: find the clips for a thirties Clara and a thirties Doctor; find different types of music for the trailer to be both classic and modern. I argued a lot with myself over the stories I wanted to tell of River's life as Melody Malone -she ended up with one of Clara's echoes as a lover- and the possibility of the Doctor being there prior to his last adventure with the Ponds. This ended up being very nonsensical and cool and story-less like many trailers.
This video is also the video that finally convinced me to maybe change editing program: the tons of filters and calcs I had to use to fake certain effects was disheartening to say the least. And it overwhelmed me. It overwhelmed my program. To the point where the sound always goes out of synch during rendering when it is perfect on the editing board. For myself, I was going out of synch way before rendering -so many calcs. I'm not completely satisfied with the result, mostly because of said audio lagging behind, but at this point there is nothing I have found to fix it -yet. I may try to somehow boost my computer and re-render it. For now, have a Melody Malone sort-of trailer. I hope you still enjoy the result.
*hugs tight everyone while trying to keep this a serious fannish post* I miss you all.
